by Mark Gearheart

Many people look at the 2011-current Coyote 5.0 engine platforms as a complex and expensive engine to build. In reality, they are actually very cost effective and can be tailored from mild to wild with ease. Want to make 350 horsepower or 1,500+? No problem. In this article we are going to explain the different levels of Coyote engine building. We teamed up with a host of manufacturers and L&R Engines to build us a Coyote engine for road racing duty on Project BOSS 302Revival.

That is NOT how we do things here at MotoIQ!

In Part 4 of our series we install Brembo rotors and pads!

Nerd Alert Part 2! SKYACTIV-X: Were Our Predictions Correct?

by Karla Pestotnik

When Mazda first announced its infamous, new SKYACTIV-X engine, we made some preliminary guesses about its workings before any information was released. Guesses are guesses, but now that Mazda has released more official information about the all-new and exciting Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition (HCCI) engine, it seems that we weren’t too far off. We recently got to poke around and even test drive their ten million dollar prototypes!

Once again, Mike Kojima walks around the new Corolla Hatchback with builder and team owner Stephan Papadakis. We also take a peek at Steph's shop and some of the genius stuff going on inside one of the smallest, lightest, and most powerful pound per pound powerplants in all of Formula DRIFT, the Toyota 2AR.  Come with us and see the details up close of one of the most well thought-out Formula DRIFT machines.

Basic Drift Car Chassis Setup: The S-Chassis Tension Rod

by Nikita Rushmanov

The rear tension rod is probably the most overlooked suspension arm on an s-chassis. A lot of people don’t understand how it works, and there is a lot of conflicting information on the internet to add to the confusion. Because of this, when most people get adjustable arms for the rear of their car, they just set their tension rod to the same length as factory and leave it.

Dai Yoshihara's 2018 Formula Drift Rebuild Continued!

by Mike Kojima

So the rush to freshen Dai's car for 2018 by Eimer Engineering continues. In our last story, the chassis had gotten acid dipped and the cage and a few other things had gotten some working over for improved stiffness and increased simplicity. 

Now the car is getting reassembled for a quick shakedown run at Irwindale and some more extensive testing at Willow Springs this week. So let's take a look! There are a lot of right ways to build a car here and anyone can benefit from looking at how our car is put together.

Squirrel Power: Making a Minibear Part 1

by David Zipf

It’s been a while since we talked about our little Suzuki FA50 runabout. You’d be forgiven for thinking it had been abandoned or sold. But fear not! Neither is true. In fact, this thing has been the perfect little around town commuter, running beautifully for the last year and a half. Aside from a minor oil pump problem, we’ve had almost no trouble with our little Suzuki. Unfortunately, it is still as slow as ever and we really need to fix that. And fix that we shall!

A fresh air duct system. We install a Blowfish Racing brake duct system on our Project BOSS 302Revival!

Project Porsche 991 GT3 RS: Dundon Motorsports Headers and Exhaust System

by Mike Kojima

It's tricky to attempt to improve the engine performance of a supercar, especially when its one that puts out 125 hp per liter like the Porsche GT3 RS does. When it comes to NA power, only the Porsche 918 hypercar and the Ferrari 458 Speciale have more punch per liter. With its screaming 8800 rpm redline, titanium internals and a sky-high 13:1 compression ratio, there isn't a whole lot more that can be done without serious engineering, beyond what most tuners can do.

Project GMC Canyon: Introduction and Icon Stage V Suspension

by Isaac Sandoval

I can't tell you how long I've dreamed of owning a mid-size pickup with a small diesel engine and 4WD. Living in Southern California, we are surrounded by plenty of great desert trails to explore. Another wonderful thing about living in Southern California is that our fuel taxes are high AF! Seriously, the taxes on fuel just went up again, and there is just no way I could justify having one of our two family vehicles be a complete gas guzzler. Enter the new 2.8 liter Duramax 4 cylinder diesel engine. This thing is a real gem when it comes to efficiency. The GMC Canyon Diesel is the highest rated MPG truck on the market. Period. No time is wasted with this project truck, and we install Icon Stage V suspension in this series. Read more to find out what we think!

We Test the Bimmerworld Exhaust and Epic Motorsports ECU Tune for E90/E92 S65 V8 BMW M3

by Pablo Mazlumian

When the S65 4.0-liter V8-powered M3 was released, enthusiasts loved the power, thanks to its 8000-plus RPM capability. However, many also deemed it not torquey enough for a V8. With this exhaust setup and tune, an M3 will make some torque, as shown in our testing at Modified by KC.
